Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP Pavilion Gaming 17-cd2091nf
This laptop PC for gamers and creatives features an original gamer design while incorporating gamer codes, with its black frame with angular lines.
It is equipped with good connectivity consisting of 1 USB-C, a practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a monitor or TV for example, Bluetooth 5 and Wi-Fi ax wireless modules ( more recent and powerful than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely, Ethernet and audio ports but also 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected to it.
Rechargeable to 50% in 45 minutes, this versatile laptop has a chiclet keyboard that can be backlit to better distinguish its keys in low light.
The screen will appeal to gamers because it improves fluidity in games thanks to its refresh rate of 144Hz higher than the standard 60Hz. In addition, thanks to its IPS technology, the screen has significant viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically. On the other hand, its colorimetry is average, below that of more high-end IPS panels. With its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format, the screen is also well suited to the display of High Definition content such as videos. Anti-reflective coating, the screen also offers better visibility than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors) while being more restful for the eyes in prolonged use.
Performance, autonomy of the HP Pavilion Gaming 17-cd2033nf
The HP Pavilion Gaming 17-cd2033nf is for those looking for a versatile, large-format, performance-oriented, creative and gaming laptop.
The general performance it provides is able to satisfy a maximum of users because it is based on 8 GB of RAM coupled to an Intel Tiger Lake-H Quad Core i5-11300H processor.
The latter notably guarantees faster processing than a low-power Quad Core, particularly in work requiring CPU resources using multicore, such as photo editing, 3D rendering or video editing.
Creators will also appreciate that their processing is accelerated under software that takes advantage of GPU computing power, such as Sony Vegas or Adobe Premiere / Photoshop, by the on-board GeForce RTX 3050.
This dedicated NVIDIA Ampere ray tracing graphics card is also able to run many games as long as we make adaptations under the opuses that are greedy in graphics resources to obtain good gameplay.
NVIDIA Optimus technology activates / deactivates the GeForce RTX 3050 automatically and in real time according to the tasks performed.
Optimus makes maximum use of the Intel Iris Xe solution integrated in the Quad Core i5 Tiger Lake-H despite its very modest services because it is energy efficient and promotes autonomy.
In this regard, bet on about 5 hours of battery operation in light use.
The GeForce RTX 3050 is therefore called upon by Optimus to perform graphics processing considered too heavy for the Intel Iris Xe. With one or the other, you can obviously watch photos and videos.
On the storage side, HP has chosen here an SSD which has the advantage of consuming less energy than a hard drive, of being silent, more resistant to shocks and much faster.
In concrete terms, the SSD guarantees much better responsiveness and fluidity in use than a simple hard drive.
Thanks to the SSD, we take advantage for example of a faster arrival on the cards of online games or even faster games / software launches, processing and starts / stops.
With its 512 GB, the SSD offers a capacity similar to the standard for hard drives. However, if you need additional space, you can use an external storage unit. Opting for a USB-C / USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting solution to obtain fast transfers.
Built around an Intel HM570 chipset, this versatile black laptop PC designed to play heats up and is heard under heavy loads (eg processing, games), however at levels below the average for this type of computer.
